    Hi

    Currently using an iPhone 6 but it’s got to the point where it battery doesn’t last the day comes off charger 7:30 and is dead by 15:00.
    The new models arnt making me want to upgrade and I’m happy on sim only since I get more data that way.

    What phones would people recommend. Only android experience I have is the two nexus7 (2013) tablets and I like that it’s stock android.

    I’ve been looking at umidigi phones my mate has the umi plus and it’s a nice phone imo. I’ve seen the plus e and z pro are on sale at the moment and the z pro is standing out more as I know the plus has issues with the usb c socket been a bit deeper so some cables don’t work but the z pro doesn’t have that issue.

    But in the end I don’t really know anything about android phones. I don’t want to pay a lot of money incase I don’t get on with it but I’m sure I will.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you like iPhone, why not look into the 6s? It's definitely a night and day difference from the 6 due to the increased RAM.

    If you really want Android, Umidigi isn't bad but has some QC issues. Xiaomi is good, I have a Mi-4c. Huawei is nice too, my very first android the Ascend still works!

    What budget are you looking for?

    We need to know your budget before we can recommend anything. However the Honor 9 is a very good mid range device with flagship specs. It also retails at a very reasonable price.

    Hmm proberbly upto £200. I know it’s not a massive amount but large outlays are an issue.

    You would have to purchase a low budget device for that price. I can recommend Moto G5. But don't expect flagship performance from it.

    Huawei Honor 5X maybe? It might be a little more than £200...
